Remote-Mount Mode S Transponder with ADS-B Out
Avidyne’s AXP322 Remote-Mount Mode S Transponder provides a reliable surveillance and 1090MHz ADS-B Out solution for general aviation aircraft with IFD540/440.
The AXP322 transponder is a remote-mounted Class 1 Mode S Level 2 Datalink Transponder, with support for 1090MHz Extended Squitter (ES), that meets all the current requirements for Mode S elementary surveillance transponders for both IFR and VFR flight. It is designed to be controlled using an Avidyne IFD540 or IFD440 GPS/NAV/COM.
The AXP322 also supports the latest Version 2 1090 MHz Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast (ADS-B) Extended Squitter, known as “ADS-B out”. Equipping with ADS-B Out will be required in most U.S. airspace by 2020. The AXP322, when coupled with the Avidyne IFD540 or IFD440 transmits position information to appropriately-equipped ground stations and other aircraft. This provides improved airborne surveillance, provides vital information for airport ground surveillance, and is a key feature of future airspace plans in the U.S. and internationally.
The pop-up keypad makes it easy for pilots to change modes, set squawk codes, and Ident the AXP322 using the touch screen on the IFD540 or IFD440.
Coupled with Avidyne’s IFD540 or IFD440, the AXP322 provides full ADS-B surveillance capability to meet the upcoming mandates for flight above and below FL180 in the U.S. and internationally. The AXP322 transmits the required ADS-B Out signals including your aircraft’s GPS-derived position via 1090MHz, along with ground track, ground speed and altitude information. Add in Avidyne’s SkyTrax100 978MHz ADS-B Receiver and you will be able to receive FIS-B weather and ADS-B/ADS-R traffic for optimal situational awareness and safety.
